Hailing from Kolkata, the woman and Asif met through facebook. She was impressed when she saw the photos he had uploaded through his account. They soon exchanged numbers and an affair began. On Asif’s continuous requests, she went to Patna to meet him. There, she was sexually harassed in a hotel room. Asif had been filming the entire incident.

On her return to Kolkata, she found herself blackmailed by Asif. She went back to Patna, pleading him to marry her. There, she was assaulted by him, yet again. After a few days, Asif took her to his parents. On their demand, her conversion to Islam began.

Even after she had accepted Islam, her in laws continued to torment her. Gathering her courage, she told about this to her mother in Kolkata. Together, they filed a complaint in the local police station. The accused are yet to be found.
